August 30th – International Day of the Disappeared

Every year on August 30th, NEFAD, along with thousands of families from across Nepal commemorates the International Day of the Disappeared to remember those disappeared during the conflict. Every year a postcard, composed in collaboration with the ICRC, is sent to all families in commemoration of their lost family members and members of the community gather in Kathmandu to hold a candle light vigil and discuss the state of transitional justice in Nepal.
